    It's taken me about nine years to get it (mostly) right. I think I know how to do it now. I will be happy to answer any questions.

    How much sun is optimal for tomato plants? Thank you for the seeds, plants, and advice.

    tomatoes thrive in the hot humid tropics (problem is so do all the bugs and noxious little pests) unlike the northern or southern southern hemisphere, that is subjected to frost, thats kills all those pests, both in the soil and flying about, the tropics doesnt have that, so constantly trying to remove them kill them or eradicate them is a constant pain in the bolloxx. I too have been mucking about trying to grow this and that, and its seemingly pointless trying to grow stuff that is not in some way shape or form, not native to this neck of the woods, you could be 6 weeks into a little project and feeling good about the seedlings, and then BAM BAM, its all gone.........search around ask around for the stuff the grows well in your neck of the woods, and try to experiment, go on the web, find out what grows well in thailand, vietnam (they have found a way of getting around all this tropical nightmare as regards sturdy disease pest free veggies), and are a million miles ahead of the phils in terms of government assistance towards sustainable farming..........building glasshouses, sitting watching plants all day trying to ward of pests, gets very demoralizing after while, gets you old real real quick..................grow what the locals grow, just do it better (use fertiliser, rain water, good soil)

    What seed/variety do you plant? Is it a hybrid? Where to get seed? Do you grow in green house? Do you use pots/hydroponics or any exotic planting techniques? What about pollination, do you polinate by hand or natural pollination.
    Thanks in advance for the information.
